I was very nervous about going on this tour alone and not sure what to expect. I loved every minute of it. The entire outback is most romantic - sunrises and sunsets were out of this world. The wildlife was surreal to see out in the open - kangaroos with their baby's hoping within just 10 feet of you. The stars we camped under were brighter than I had ever seen - and in between the hiking, camping, abd helicopter tour - I made lifetime friends.
Take versatile clothes and pack light. You just need closed toed tennis shoes, sunblock, hat, and a good water bottle. It's so hot out there youll need to rehydrate constantly. Also, you'll end up buying a mosquito net (worth every dime I paid for it - but I noticed price fluctuations so you can shop around a little).
And the most important thing to do is to sit at some of these amazing places and take a moment to reflect on them. At kata tjuta you can take a moment to evaluated the scenery and listen to the wind. The way the rocks align up you can hear the wind speaking to you. At uluru you can reflect on the aboriginals story of creationism while watching a sunrise change the color of uluru right before your eyes.

An absolutely fantastic tour, full of spectacular landscapes and legendary travel-mates. Go by yourself, each of us in the group of 20 were by ourselves, and had the best fun hanging out, having heaps of laughs... Everyone was so positive and fun and so was the tour manager and driver! The sites you'll see are like no other. It's a relatively active Contiki tour and there are a few hot and tiring hikes. But you feel on top of the world afterwards! And you can opt out of those walks if you don't have the fitness levels. Get excited about the bushtucker tour, sleeping under the stars and the reptile park!
Do it. Go. Get off your couch and book now!!! No regrets!!!
